Rimmel's Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation Review

Rimmel's "Stay Matte" foundation comes in eight shades:
  • Light Porcelain
  • Light Ivory
  • Ivory
  • True Ivory
  • Soft Beige
  • Classic Beige
  • True Beige
  • Sand
Rimmel is available at Wal-Mart, Walgreens, Target, CVS Pharmacy, Kmart, Rite Aid Pharmacy, Meijer, and other retailers nationwide.

You can find it anywhere from $5-$7.

When this foundation came out it wasn't a foundation I was DYING to try.  I didn't realize until using it that this isn't just a liquid foundation but a mousse/liquid formulation.

I like liquid foundations and I like mousse foundation but have yet to really LOVE any of the two.
I would compare this to a combination of "L'Orels True Match" liquid foundation and Revlon's Whipped Colorstay foundation, BUT it's cheaper than both of them.

It has a very full coverage like the whipped foundation with out being drying like the liquid foundation.

If you follow me on instagram @_sydxoxo you know that I received this foundation for free in a Voxbox that was sent to me this week. I've now worn it three days straight and have fallen IN LOVE with it.

At home at this very moment I probably have about 30-50 different foundations that I try and use on a daily basis but I have NEVER in my 19 years of life, fallen in love with a foundation like this one.

It is a full coverage foundation without making you look cakey and dry.  It's also a matte foundation, so it's perfect if you have oily skin.   I have normal to dry skin and it gives me just enough hydration but still remains matte all day without using a setting powder.  I recommend you prime your face and set it with a translucent powder to help your foundation stay flawless all day but honestly, today I wore it while shopping all day without priming or setting it and never had to touch up.

I used a regular foundation brush to apply it but i'm sure a beauty blender will work just the same. I'm in the color true beige right now but will probably purchase "classic beige" after summer.   It covers all my blemishes and discoloration perfectly without a concealer and makes my skin look perfect.  It doesn't move around or smear even in the hottest temperatures. 

To wrap it up, I love this foundation and I will definitely purchase another tube when this one runs out.  I suggest if you haven't found a foundation you're in love with, i'd definitely try this one.
